Auto Finance Summit 2018 - Bet On GoldStar - October 24-26, 2018 at The Wynn Las Vegas

The Auto Finance Summit 2018 To-Do List

Auto Finance Summit 18 Session Recommendations

The 18th annual Auto Finance Summit in Las Vegas is growing from the events of years past. In order to deliver on its stated mission to provide excellent education and networking to the auto lending and leasing industry, several new workshops, spotlight sessions, and networking events are being added to an exhibit hall of more than 100 vendors and more than 40 speakers. Featured new additions include a compliance workshop, a spotlight track on innovation, and a Women in Auto Finance Luncheon.

This may all be a lot to digest. We’ve taken the liberty of perusing the agenda to highlight the sessions that are most intriguing to us. See if you’ve got these on your laundry list; maybe we’ll see you there.

Workshop C: Exacting Greater Efficiencies to Mitigate Margin Compression

Wednesday, Oct. 24, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Margin compression is an issue we discuss a lot around the GoldStar offices. As margins get pinched, something’s got to give in order for lenders to turn a buck. Increasing efficiency — getting more from less — is the key to unlocking your business’s full potential. The 10 a.m. presentation is titled “Growing Yield Amid Rising Rates.” Yes, please! 

Workshop B: Small Lenders & Credit Unions

Wednesday, Oct. 24, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Yes, we know we’re recommending workshops that take place concurrently. If you have multiple people attending AFS 18 (and both are relevant to you), we suggest splitting to attend both up so you don’t miss either. Maximization of the agility inherent in small lenders and credit unions is another big concept for us. We definitely are interested in sopping up everything we can during the roundtable discussions.

Session Three: Presentation — How Are Borrowers Performing in Today’s Economy? (Nonprime Track)

Thursday, Oct. 25, 11:15 a.m.
It’s crucial to stay abreast of the current economic climate, especially as it effects your business now and into the future. With trade wars and tariffs abound, anyone with a pulse can see the volatile relationship between politics and economics occurring at this moment in history. We need all the help we can get in identifying where we are in the cycle, what to do about rising interest rates, and how to react to rising customer debt. This is sessions sounds like a can’t-miss.

AFS 2018 is Oct. 24 through 26 at The Wynn in Las Vegas. Come by GoldStar Booth #127 to catch up, talk shop, and see our latest wares, including GoldStar Connect.
